DUI Charges Filed For Driver Who Struck Tree In LaGrange Park

LAGRANGE PARK, Ill. (STMW) -- A 25-year-old Berwyn man has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after he crashed his SUV into a tree April 8 in LaGrange Park, sending himself and two others to the hospital.

Armando Zuniga, of the 3800 block of Home Avenue, also was charged with driving too fast for conditions, on the sidewalk, without a seat belt and without insurance following the collision at 12:57 a.m. on the 800 block of La Grange Road.

Zuniga was released from Loyola Medical Center April 12. His passengers, a 29-year-old Berwyn man and a 26-year-old LaGrange Park man, were released from Loyola April 11.

Evidence at the scene showed Zuniga was headed south on La Grange Road when his black 1999 Chevy Tahoe crossed two lanes, jumped a curb and hit a tree.
